I know it's a stretch of the imagination but I'm pretty sure it's true. I think it's pretty funny that g-man is quick to poke those south of Pinconning for ushering the Dem's in to office, but he's two counties away from being in the red. :tonka:

yeah there is much more rural white folks on wellfare than blacks.

Too bad poor white folks cant qualify for affirmative action based on economic situation. Then again we all know all whites are rich and all blacks are down trodden, no opportunity etc. I mean blacks dont get same public education as whites do they? Same banks, same grants, everyones money is green but some reason immigrants can make it but 5th generation american blacks need help from uncle sam. Do the rest of the bleeding hearts know this ?

This is a fine point you make sir. And I think the caucasian population is getting wise to this and finally are beginning to vote it down.

still exits in 47 states i think. Plus U of M is pulling an Al gore and wants to sue of the proposal now. Big surprise. Not sure how it will effect federal jobs like postal stuff and all levels of federal civil service and federal grants for minorites.

as a matter of fact, rural white folks do get points for that with affirmative action, as well as women, and minorities. Affirmative action doesn't just affect black people.

Have you ever tried finding a BANK ATM machine, not to be confused with ATMs found in party stores/check cashing businesses/Western Unions, in the inner-city? It's not as easy as finding one in the 'burbs. A bank is a business. In general, inner city blacks are not known for maintaining a savings account which allows banks to lend money and profit from the interest. They are also not known for having stellar credit scores which would qualify them for a loan. Now, factor in the crime rate and you'll see why banks aren't on every corner in the inner-city.

What does this give rise to? Check cashing businesses! What do these check cashing services do? That's right, they cash checks for a fee! (~10-17% IIRC). Would you say you have equal spending power compared to some suburbanite who gets free checking at the local bank when you have to cough-up 10-17% of your bring home just so you can spend it?

I can rattle of 20+ major American cities I've been to, every time it's smack dab in the ghetto, and have tried to find a bank ATM. It's the same story everywhere....
